Apparently a lawsuit has been filed against most of the major wireless companies. Unfortunately, the article makes no effort to explain what the lawsuit is actually about. As far as I can tell it's some angry consumers who are upset that the shiny new cell phones they bought don't work on some carrier's network. I don't see what the big deal is, but apparently they felt a lawsuit was needed to prove that the carriers can't "bundle" the phones with their packages. At least I think that's what the lawsuit is about. I can understand the complaint to a certain point... but I don't see why it's worth a lawsuit. It would be nice to be able to use whatever phone with whatever service (assuming they were technically compatable), but I don't really see where anyone's rights have been violated.
